A fun opportunity for Irish communities to embrace sustainable and healthy modes of travel

Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan, said ‘Bike Week 2024 presents a fun opportunity for Irish communities to embrace sustainable and healthy modes of travel. With a wide range of events catering to individuals of all ages and abilities, I am delighted to see the event’s growing success year-on-year.
